Weebly has been around since 2006, which makes them a leader in the online web design industry. They also have one of the most powerful site developers/editors I’ve seen.
I found Weebly to be easy to use. They use a drag and drop setup, with a left hand “dock” for different modules. You choose basic themes that set the tone for your site, and go from there. You do need to have some idea of how you want your site to look, but that’s common with all drag and drop builders.
Four options: free, and $8, $12, and $25 a month (when paid annually). I must say, the $25 option is quite robust, and great for full blown e-commerce and member sites.
Might be a tad complicated for total newbies.
Weebly covers the whole spectrum. Everyone from a kitchen table blogger to a full blown e-commerce business can find a home here.
Weebly is an excellent platform that is easy enough for beginners, but has the power and features to appeal to more professional users too.
